Brain Snap

Have you noticed lately how common it’s become for people to use the term ‘brain-snap’ as an excuse to get out of something stupid they have done!

It seems to be used by well known people – mainly sporting people, and more specifically Rugby League players and coaches – for when they fuck up big time.

The do or say something stupid, but when questioned about it, they seem to be exonerated as soon as they say, “oh, I had a brain snap.”
Oh, well that’s ok then.
It doesn’t matter that you glassed your girlfriend, threw a phone at someone or accused a whole sport of being cheats and biased, you said it was just brain snap, so you’re ok then.

And so what the fuck IS a ‘brain-snap’?
Well, I had to google it and here is the answer (by the way I googled this after I had written the above) :

BRAIN SNAP - the term used by famous people (and normal people) to justify doing something really stupid that if they'd taken half a second to think about it they probably wouldn't have done it anyway. It's a cheap way of saying sorry for doing something dumb and not taking any slack for it.

You know what – I don’t think ‘normal people’ use this term at all and I think the last sentence explains it all.

If you live in Australia, you may have already read this article below.
The accident happened only a few kilometres from my place on Saturday afternoon and my partner drove by only a few minutes after it happened. Luckily she wasn’t going through there a few minutes earlier.

Apart from that, it’s just disgusting that these young blokes, the driver be unlicensed, the car unregistered, chose to sit and eat take away food rather than help a dying old man.

“A group of youths sat on the roadside and ate fast food while an elderly man lay dying from a crash involving their high-performance car, witnesses claim.
The four teenagers and one 27-year-old were travelling in a Subaru WRX when it collided with a 1974 Ford Escort panel van on Saturday at a roundabout at Miami on Queensland's Gold Coast.
The panel van was hit with such force that it flipped onto its side, partially ejected an 82-year-old man. He suffered chest injuries and later died in hospital, while his 72-year-old partner sustained abdominal and leg injuries and remains in a critical condition.
A police media spokeswoman said the Subaru, carrying five occupants, was unregistered and the 18-year-old driver disqualified from driving.
Police also confirmed to the Bulletin that the car and its owner were known to them, having been impounded on November 13 for 48 hours for hooning offences.
Witnesses to the accident told the Bulletin they were disgusted with the youths' behaviour, saying not one of them attempted to help, and instead sat and ate McDonald's that had been dropped off to them.
"They just stood there and then they sat down and then someone dropped Maccas off to them," local resident Fabian Atzori told the Bulletin.
"What is it with young people where they can just turn off to human injury?"
A passenger of the Subaru was charged with failure to provide information to police, and three other Subaru occupants were handcuffed but not charged.
Sergeant Brendon O'Reilly said the crash investigation team were still investigating the crash to determine whether the Subaru was speeding at the time of the accident.”

Fingers politically correct story reminded me of something that happened to me a while back.

I was 18 and living in America and was returning for a holiday in Oz.

My 14 year old sister and I were travelling together on a flight from Denver to LA and 2 young and very dodgy looking middle-eastern guys sat near us.

As we were taxiing to the runway, they stood up and rushed over to the emergency exit door right in front of us and started fiddling with it.

The hostie told them to sit down but they ignored her and continued on to hang up some sort of scroll on the exit door.

My sister and I shit ourselves, turned to each other and thought ‘This is it!’

Hurriedly they laid some inscripted towels on the floor, knelt on them and started praying.

The hosties were now yelling at them and I felt like telling the hosties “don’t fucking upset them!”

They eventually finished their prayers and returned to the seats, leaving behind several rows of frightened passengers and two shit-scared young Aussie kids.

One of the most terrifying moments of my life.

Lucky I had my brown undies on….
